Medical engineering is increasingly deploying nanotechnology and bio-inspired designs in the 21st century. Motivated by studying the spin coating of bio-nanofluid materials, gyrotactic bioconvection nanofluid swirling coating flow from a spinning disk to an isotropic permeable medium is analysed. The balance equations for mass, momentum, thermal, concentration and microorganism species including blowing effects are transformed into ordinary differential equations and then the solutions are obtained numerically through MATLAB bvp4c quadrature. These solutions are further validated with ADM (Adomian decompositions method). Increasing radial momentum slip reduces the radial skin friction and increasing tangential slip suppresses the tangential skin friction. Nusselt number, nanoparticle Sherwood number and micro-organism density number gradient are respectively decreased with increment in thermal slip, nanoparticle mass slip and micro-organism slip factors. Combinations of bioconvection and nanofluids provide excellent advantages in designing anti-bacterial and resilient bio-coatings for many devices.
